Happy Valentine's Day

Hope you are having a love filled day.
Here is the card I made for my hubbie.  I wanted to keep it pretty simple and not too pink. :)  He's not into fussy cards. :)
So I used THIS pretty digikit by Jen Martakis.  I will be using a LOT more of this polka dot paper. (Oh, and if you've not seen my current challenge, click HERE for polka dot madness).
And the sentiment is from THIS FREE DIGIKIT from Kristina Proffitt- how wonderfully generous she is. 
Supplies: PP and images - Jen Martakis; Sentiment - Kristina Proffitt
Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
P.S. A few people have been asking recently if I get through a lot of printer ink.  Truth is, no. I use a medium quality setting rather than a photo setting - and the quality is still really good.  I print a LOT, a real lot, but only need new cartridges every few months or so.  I was really surprised how long they last.  I am sure the medium quality thing makes a big difference. :)  Oh, and not replacing the ink when it tells you to.  My printer has been telling me to replace the ink for about 3 weeks... I ignore it until the colour goes strange :)

Oh this is perfect for hubbies!! Love that heart! My DH is the same way, he actually doesn't care for cards at all! lol He'll go for food though! ;)

Great card, love the colors. Thanks for the printer info, I have resisted digi backgrounds because I thought it would consume so much ink. Happy Valentine's Day.
